  1. Every time I log in, my graphical settings have been undone. All the other changes (battle chat, sound settings, etc.) are the way I left them. Any idea why?

    1. Rexxie


      It's having trouble writing the new settings to your dossier. It could be that there's something wrong with your dossier itself, you can try moving/removing it from C:\Users\[You]\AppData\Roaming\Wargaming.net\WorldOfTanks\dossier_cache and letting the game generate a new one. You'll have to set your settings again, though. You probably want to just move it & put it back in if it doesn't fix the issue.

    2. Darvek


      Success! Thank you!

  2. I swear the upswings and downswings in this game are worse than poker. I really need to learn consistency, and when to give up on an engagement. 20k battles and I still suck at both.

    1. sohojacques


      I've had 58-59% recent win rate for ages. But for the last week I've been barely cracking 50% despite all my other stats being steady or even above average. I don't think you really know what frustration is until you play WoT.

    2. Daerlon


      For me the biggest improvement in experience of this game was to stop comparing this game to legitimate, predictable, logical games and just do what you can with what it is....

    3. OperatorError


      My recent (1,000 game sample) win rate has fluctuated between 62% and 52%, all with a pretty stable 3.8-4K recent WN8.

      Fuck caring about that nonsense.

      Edit - I mean that I do care about individual wins, but do my best to ignore any tracked statistic of any kind.

  3. I want to play tanks, but I'm very tired and I know I'll play badly, then get salty, and not want to play tanks for days. Such a dilemma.

  4. WoT runs on my machine at 100+ fps. Replay files, whether my own or downloaded, run at 10-15 fps, which is pretty nauseating. Anybody have any idea why, and what I can do to fix it?

    1. Folterknecht


      Install a monitoring tool like Afterburner to check clockspeeds (CPU + GPU) and CPU core usage ingame and in replays.

  5. An extremely satisfying end to my Caernarvon grind. What a lovely tank this is. Definitely a keeper.


    1. Cronk


      TFW they buffed it shortly after I finished playing it. :notlikethis:

    2. KruggWulf


      It puts the smackdown on them bitch ass pubbies.

    3. king_spaniel


      Man, I played that tank years back when it was a flaming hot POS.  But I do constantly hear stories of how improved it is since then, so kudos to you that you got to enjoy it.

  6. Well, this is a new one. My own team giving me shit for firing premium rounds at a Type 4 heavy, in my tier 8. Because I'm a "gold noob shitter." Apparently I should just "aim at the cheeks," because a <20% chance to pen is apparently acceptable to muppets.

    1. StormCrowReaperManyHats


      See on EU I could understand that because EU is special but NA I don't get.

    2. Gr1nch_1


      Gold nub go flank

    3. Haswell


      Reply that unlike them, you are not poor and can shoot prem all day long.

  7. Glad I came back for a second session this evening. First round was 30% WR, 1300 dpg. Took a break, got my head right, tried again. Second session, 100% WR, 2550 dpg. I'll take it.

  8. Trying to do LT15. Get Prok for the first time in weeks. TD decides to charge up behind me in my spotting bush and open fire. We're both vaporized.


  9. Leo 1 on-track on NA. Is it finally time to buy the Indien Panzer, some 2+ years after I unlocked it?

    1. kolni


      the only reason to play that line at all is to play the pta which is pretty decent for a t9, but literally everything in the line is a massive middle finger from russia to germany for the past 

      or as serB puts it: 


    2. Darvek


      Yeah, I was looking at the PTA more than the Leo 1 or the IP. But I'm not sure the PTA isn't just a worse Patton, and I already have a Patton. Kinda why I stopped going up the line at tier 7 in the first place.

    3. kolni


      PTA is currently better than the Patton thanks to final acc and HEAT pen, M46 is not a good T9 anymore

  10. Church III is so preposterously good for those silly "win and finish in the top 3" missions. You don't even really need to have a good game, just 'not dreadful' and the xp coefficient does the rest.

      @Haswell what powercreep? ON t5 there is none

    3. Haswell


      Church 3 was pre-T67. Also T6 creep from Japanese box tanks.

    4. wes


      The new MM makes sure you always have some poor t5 folks for target practice. It's funny many t6 mediums incl cromwell thought they can kill me with ease and stood still trading shoot with me, and then run in panic but too late.

  11. Last 30 or 40 games in WZ 111 1-4 have been an utter disaster. How can such a comfortable tank perform so poorly in my hands?


  12. Is there any good reason to pick up the top engine on the WZ 111 1-4? Spending 46k xp for 20 horsepower doesn't seem like a judicious use of resources, and I haven't noticed that I need more module health.

    1. RC_Tank


      I haven't, but I'm keeping the tank so I will eventually.

  13. I don't understand rerolls. That's a lot of time and money to waste for vanity. But I really, really don't understand rerolls who pad to green stats and teal WR in low tier tanks.


    1. Haswell
    2. simba90


      To get focused by arty more. It baffles smarter minds than mine.

    3. DirtyACE7


      When your vanity and sense of self-worth outweigh your reasoning abilities. Nevermind shitty rerolls, what about all those legendary 45%ers who perceive themselves to be the greatest gift to the game.

  14. The upcoming Chinese New Year missions give you bonus XP for every Raider medal you get. In 18k battles, I have exactly 0 Raider medals, and I don't think I'm at all unusual in this respect. What are they thinking?

    1. NightmareMk9


      28400 games and 2 Raider Awards

      Git Gud Son

    2. Darvek


      Dude! That means if you play like 14k games this weekend, on average, you'll get an extra 800xp or so.

    3. Assassin7


      Yup, 0 raider medals.

  15. Alpine Tiger is gorgeous, but there's no way I can justify more than $50 for it in this meta, especially with trade-ins making the 112 available for less than 5000 gold.

  16. I honestly don't know what's more frustrating. Watching my team full of idiots lose in under 4 minutes, or watching my team of idiots meet a band of even bigger idiots and get rewarded for their idiocy with a win.

      @Assassin7 but sometimes the rest of the team doesnt clear the rest of the map and the beach wins because the enemy team dies going down or got wittled down to 1 shots

    3. simba90


      @hazzgar But then the other 99 games happen in that group of 100 where the beach push doesn't do shit for winning the game.

    4. hazzgar


      @simba90 no shit sherlock. I'm just stating how the mouthbreathing public forms their opinions. They get a carry once in 500 games because the enemy team is autistic and they think they did something right so they try to replicate that because don't understand that the tanks don't fire giant vaccine needles so you can't reliably give autism to the enemy team (yes I know vaccines don't cause autism) 

  17. Purchased:
    The T34 B has been removed. The 112 has been purchased for gold:  4,500.

    One Thanksgiving reward down, one to go. Debating mostly between the t54 mod 1 and the Rev at this point, though vaguely considering a few others.

      i dont think so :( at least not on NA

    3. Fulcrous


      I think that was a downgrade. T34 is really good.

    4. Darvek


      @Fulcrous That's the 2nd T34 on the account. I have one, and got another for the Thanksgiving marathon. It's an OK tank, but I don't need two.


      @hall0What Action said. The 250 gold pen at least lets me contest weak spots on most things I meet. I'm enjoying it so far, though the teams are rough. Plus it's so pretty with the holiday camo. Shiny!

  18. Unlocked the tier 8 cent. The top gun is already unlocked for me, but it's only compatible with the cent and the tier 9 cent, so why would it already be unlocked? I'm baffled.

    1. breeeze


      Used to be the Caernarvons gun too

    2. Darvek


      Oh. And I guess having researched it before they changed the Caern still counts?


    3. ZXrage


      apparently so. I mean, you already downed the XP on it.

  19. Two Oskin's Medals to close out my session this evening, and an Ace in my Comet. Didn't start well, but managed to stay calm and have some better games. Maybe I'm learning something. Probably not.

    1. Errants


      What was your base Exp on the Comet Ace? And/or replay?

    2. Darvek


      1240 ish I think. It wasn't a particularly exciting game. Spent most of it camping behind my spawn shooting and spotting the things that were flooding through from a lost flank. I'll post it in a few minutes though.


  20. Log in, first game, get pushed out of cover then because that wasn't enough he shoots me through the track. Not even 60 seconds in to the game. Gonna be that kinda day I guess.

  21. Cursed tanks or not, project 9.22 is complete.

    'Object 430' successfully purchased. Spent credits:  6,100,000.

    1. monjardin


      Nice. I need to grind another 1.5 million credits to buy one. I shot way too much HEAT.

  22. Pretty sure my IS6 is cursed. Was having a great session in literally every other tank. IS6 - 700 dpg, 200 blocked per game, 11% WR.

    1. hazzgar


      I get the feeling. My t54lwt dropped by 10% in a month. Some of it is me getting triggered but I'm still going up marks so I should be higher than 58%...

    2. Javajunkie8b


      I get the same feeling about my IS7.  About the same amount of games as my E4 but 62% vs like 42%.  I even play them the exact same way...frontline.  When I play my IS7 my teams seem to just melt around me.   

  23. Is it Racist Day on the NA server and somebody forgot to tell me? Three games straight with assholes ranting about Latino players (or those they think might be Latino players).

    2. Audax_Bellator


      With my in game name the drooling moron pubbies think I'm and I quote "fucking beaner"

      Never mind that my English and grammar is drasticly better than theirs or that I tell them I'm German by decent and live in Mass. 

    3. Daerlon


      Unfortunately, for some people on NA every day is racist day.

    4. DirtyACE7


      Wouldn't surprise me if they themselves were Latin. Know a few and they rage at other Latin players all the time and regularly admit that Latin players for the most part are the absolute worst on the server.

  24. Armored Patrol has an announcement (translated from Russian) that the 705 armor profile will be fixed in the second round of Common Test. This seems to confirm that there will be a second round of testing, so we've got a bit of time before 9.22 yet.

      Update Today.  We got 2 weeks

      WoT – 9.22 Release Date


      Quick news – 9.22 is planned for the 6th of February on RU, and most likely the 7th on EU. An open beta of 1.0 will be released in March.

    3. Fulcrous


      "fixed". more like forced to change

    4. Darvek


      The in-client stats didn't remotely match the model. And the top turret was correct. That makes it seem like a bug where they just forgot to put in the right numbers, and the placeholders were 300/300/300 for whatever bizarre reason.

  25. Which circle of Hell does Dante reserve for Japanese superheavy drivers who whine about premium ammo in after-battle messages?

    1. Show previous comments  2 more
    2. Daerlon


      the 2nd, obviously

    3. nabucodonsor


      Sesta bolgia ottavo cerchio-hypocrites

    4. DirtyACE7


      Why reserve just one circle of hell for them. Just let them get dragged through all of them, repeatedly.
